The crisis of trust
Corona Virus vaccine is considered to be the world’s best hope of overcoming covid-19 pandemic. However, a growing number of people are skeptical regarding the vaccines therefore the idea of mandatory vaccine is unacceptable to many people. Those who are against the idea of injecting their bodies with something controversial imply the declining trust in scientific experts and political leaders. Protestors in the UK and the US took it to the streets considering both the virus and the vaccine a part of the wider government conspiracy. The proportion of the global population generally against vaccines is less than 10%.
One of the biggest reasons which make coronavirus vaccine a controversial topic is based in the fear of the use of microchip implants. Furthermore, some theories suggest that these microchips are capable of altering an individual’s
DNA. It is believed that some of the newly developed vaccines by Pfizer/ Biotech contain a fragment of the virus’ genetic material or messenger RNA. However, Oxford University Professor Jeffery Almond asserts that injecting RNA does not do anything to DNA of human cell. Most of the internet posts suggest that RNA messenger technology had not been tested or approved earlier.
Nevertheless, scientists claim that mRNA vaccine despite not being approved earlier had been used on humans in the past few years. Cynicism regarding the coronavirus vaccine does not end here as it is believed that the coronavirus pandemic is a clever pretext to implant trackable microchips. In light of this conspiracy theory Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has been accused of planning to implant people with microchips. In March 2020 Bill Gates in an interview had introduced the idea of digital certificates capable of keeping record of the vaccine. This interview became the basis of this popular article “Bill Gates will use microchips to fight coronavirus.” This article makes reference to Gates Foundations technological capability of storing an individual’s ‘vaccine records in a special ink administered at the time of injection.’ However, The Gates Foundation has debunked all these claims as this technology is more like an invisible tattoo and does not involve a microchip.
A video by a TikTok user about microchip implants and calling the vaccine the mark of the beast made the coronavirus vaccine even more suspicious.
Recently three Orthodox Jewish rabbis have approved the vaccine safe for their community. However, fear regarding the use of coronavirus vaccine still persists as a handful of people have recently had severe allergic reactions to Pfizer and Biotech vaccines. Thousands of pieces of information against the coronavirus vaccine have been removed from the internet fearing that it may cause potential physical harm. A vaccine is perhaps seen as the only hope to a safe and healthy world. However, before being vaccinated it is an individual’s right to exactly know what is about to be injected into his body.
